RSA Catalyst is now accepting applications for the next round until Monday 19 September 2016
Scaling Catalyst Grants of £10,000
These grants are for exceptional projects addressing one of our key themes that have clearly demonstrated their proof of concept and are ready to scale up. We offer a limited number of £10,000 grants and will award to the projects where we feel our grant will have the greatest impact.
Small Catalyst Grants of £1,000 - £2,000
These grants are for new projects that are in their early stages, and in need of a financial boost to help them develop into a sustainable project which will deliver impact. We will always consider truly outstanding proposals that fall outside the scope of our three key themes.
